Orange County Fishing at Laguna Lake Park in Fullerton, CA
About Laguna Lake
Laguna Lake offers some great local fresh water fishing. This lake offers Southern California anglers the ability to fish for large mouth bass, trout, catfish, carp, crappie and bluegill.
In Orange County, California the inland freshwater lakes are either publicly or privately owned. Private lakes offer fee based fishing while public lakes are usually free to fish. Some public lakes have parking fees. There is no fee to park or fish at Laguna Lake.
Laguna Lake is a public lake managed by the City of Fullerton Parks and Recreation Department. The State of California Department of Fish and Wildlife stocks the lake with trout beginning in November and continuing through Spring. In the summer the lake is stocked with catfish. Bluegill are in large schools in all parts of the lake and reach sizes larger than most other local lakes. Large mouth bass in excess of 10 ponds can be found here all year and are most active in the early morning hours.
